About Reserved Barking

Who We Are

Is your best friend not receiving enough attention? Would you like to play with them more but just don’t have the time? Are you feeling guilty that you’re out and about while they’re stuck at home with nobody to talk to? Do you worry when you need to take a trip that no one will take good care of your pooch? Does your dog’s grooming ritual consist mainly of a quick hose-down in the driveway and wiping their feet at the door?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Reserved Barking is the place to be!

At Reserved Barking your pup can gallivant and socialize in over 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play areas, all while being catered to by a dedicated staff of dog lovers. We specialize in caring for dogs while their owners are at work, or have other commitments that would force their dog to be left home alone. We are dedicated to giving the pups in our care a fun-filled day of physical, emotional and mental stimulation.

Going on a trip? Bring your dog to Reserved Barking so they can have a vacation too! Boarded dogs enjoy the same doggy daycare attention, but then snooze away safely during dog boarding with on-site staff throughout the night.

Reserved Barking can help your dog look and feel its very best. From a simple nail trim to a deluxe spa package, we customize our services to meet your needs. Our bathing, brushing, teeth cleaning and nail care dog grooming services can be combined with your dog’s stay.

Collective Years of Experience

“Thanks to the wonderful and caring team at Reserved Barking. Hendrick and I just moved to the area. I travel for my job so Hendrick has become a “regular” rather quickly. I am a veterinarian and have seen dogs come out of facilities nervous, unsettled and upset. Hendrick RACES to go IN and comes home happy and exhausted.

Being able to add a boarding night on when my travels run late is wonderful. And having 1/2 day rates that can start at any time of day instead of only AM and PM is super helpful as well.

I’ve used doggie daycare for 15 years. Reserved Barking is the best. Hendrick adds his “AROO” too!”
